Ashley sighs and puts her hands on her hips. “What’s going on with our house, Daniel?” Dan eases his face out of a frown before speaking.

The Cost To Paint A House Exterior
The cost to paint the exterior of a house in Marblehead, Massachusetts is usually between $8,000 and $45,000. The average cost is about $12,500. It can go outside of this range. It depends on several factors like size and the house’s current state.
Ashley scrolls down to find out what other factors change the cost to paint the exterior of a house.
What Can Change The Cost
- Size of the project
- Current status of the paint
- Color changes
- Overall complexity
What’s the current status of the paint? If there are only a few blemishes then it should be fine. But if there’s a lot of peeling and such, the cost will go up. All that peeling paint needs scraping off first. Poorly maintained houses may have to pay a few thousand dollars before the painting even begins!
Drastic color changes are costly too. Painting over an older paint job requires more time, materials, and labor. For a colonial house, a second coat of paint for the siding can cost $3,800. Painting both siding and trim can be $7,200.
This all blends together into complexity. Second stories, fancy trim, specific paint, and many other factors are at play.
